Area 15 is an innovative small, micro, business incubator. We are located in Charlotte, NC, in the NODA arts district. This 23,000 sq. foot building is itself an evolving piece of art filled with tenants who have a community heart. (Please check out www.globalrichlist.com to get a perspective on this- you will be surprised! Hint: if you made $3,000 last year you made more $ than 85% of people in the world!) Area 15 includes studio spaces for techies, artists, musicians, and a diverse group of other professionals. We currently house over 20 small businesses, including other small business incubators, a “Really Really Freestore”, an Urban Prayer room, a bicycle recyclery, a “street magazine”, t-shirt shop, a deli, a coffee shop with direct ties to Colombia, a free legal clinic, in addition to all sorts of craftsmen, tattooists, cooks, builders, designers, writers,etc. Many of us live in this neighborhood and we come together to make our daily lives a unique experience. Scroll down this page to Flickr and see some of our community pics!
One of our goals is to inspire others to take a vacant warehouse in another financially struggling neighborhood and, along with the people who live around it, (those who need jobs), build another micro business incubator of their own.
We invite you to arrange a tour of Area 15 and meet some of the members of our community. We look forward to seeing you soon!
